McDonald’s Re-writes Playbook for Corporate America and Crisis
Amid the #MeToo and Black Lives Matter movements, McDonald’s is changing the rules for how corporate America handles a crisis. Earlier this week, the company sued disgraced former CEO Steve Easterbrook to recoup stock options and other compensation. The hamburger giant alleges Easterbrook had sexual relationships with three employees and awarded stock shares to one of them. The suit seeks to recoup millions in severance it paid the former chief.
